Erm, I haven't written a story on the MB in a while, so... here it goes O_O Oh, if your a child of Lyzzy, please put your name below so I can include you xD
"Oh dear," Lyss muttered as Oz began climbing up the tree. She shook her head and clucked her tongue.
Chu and Kathy raced out of the house frantically. "What's Dad doing?" Chu asked. She began wondering if he had lost his sanity.
Lyss crossed her arms. "He's trying to get that birdhouse down." There was a half-smile on her face, though her daughters didn't understand why. She turned and looked at Chu. "Go get the trampoline, won't you, dear?"
Kathy raised her eyebrows. "The trampoline? What for?" she asked as Chu raced away.
Lyss smiled. "Why, to catch your dear father when he falls, of course."
In any other circumstance, that would have been funny. Unfortunately, Oz had promised to buy Kathy a new set of weapons, so she wasn't letting him die yet. "Oh," she replied, eyes widening. "HURRY UP, CHU!" she yelled.
Oz was halfway up the tree already, and he was straining to grab a hold of another branch. "Don't worry, my dears! Father will be perfectly alri- ACKKKK!" he shouted as a a bird jumped out of nowhere and attacked him. He struggled to maintain his balance and fight off the bird.
Lyss shook her head again and chuckled softly. "Chu, my dear, I think we'll be needing that trampoline very soon!" she called.
By this time, Kathy had gone to help her sister. They both were only a couple of feet away from Lyss, dragging the rather heavy trampoline behind them.
Oz finally hauled himself up and grabbed the birdhouse. "Alright, I'm coming down! No need for the trampoline, see?"
Kathy and Chu placed the trampoline under him anyways. The tree was extremely tall, and Oz was still way at the top.
"I'm almost hoping he'll fall," Lyss whispered to herself.
"What?" Kathy asked, wondering if she heard her mother properly.
"I said I'm hoping he won't fall," Lyss replied, giving her a signature mysterious smile.
Chu stood under the tree. "JUST HURRY UP AND FALL, DAD," she yelled up at him.
Promptly, a branch snapped from under Oz's feet, and he fell. He landed on the trampoline fairly hard, then bounced off and landed in a row of bushes.
"Oh, lovely," Lyss said, smiling. "Too bad he didn't break his neck."
"What did you say, lovely wifey?" Oz asked, grinning as he poked his head out of the bush. There were leaves tangled everywhere in his hair.
